UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

It’s that time. Starfish Academic Status Reports

Faculty and course instructors, have you completed your Starfish Academic Status Reports?

You recently received a request to complete these reports by logging into Blackboard and clicking on the Starfish tab. As an instructor, you can raise flags for students of concern and add “kudos” for students with outstanding performance. The Students First Office solicits your valuable feedback twice each semester (three times for athletes). Your participation drives a holistic approach to student success and retention.

Last semester UNCG faculty raised more than 10,000 flags and kudos for more than 5,000 students. The Students First Office reached out to each student of concern to connect them with academic and campus resources in an attempt to increase student efficacy and improve academic performance. The office looks forward to your feedback which serves as a catalyst to facilitate positive change in student learning and wellness.

Please reference the Starfish web site or Faculty Guide to Starfish for more information. If you have any questions, contact Holly Grabowski Hebard, coordinator of Academic Outreach in Students First, at 256-8540 or hmgrabow@uncg.edu.
